Women to make historic UFC debut
Ronda Rousey has an Olympic judo medal, a commanding presence and a string of victories in her short mixed martial arts career.
Now shes got a showcase worthy of her talent.
Rousey and Liz Carmouche will make history Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif., when they meet in the first womens bout in UFC history.
I feel like the brighter the lights are, the better I can see, Rousey said. I feel like Im the most capable person, and I should do whatever I can to make it happen.
Theyre the main event at UFC 157. Its a remarkable rise for Rousey, a bronze medalist at the Beijing Olympics who picked up MMA before her pro debut in March 2011.
Rousey is a huge favorite to retain the UFC womens bantamweight belt.
